  • Here are 3 Ice Cream and Gelato Supplies Your Store Should Have

    Ice cream has been a popular dessert treat in the United States for well over a hundred years. The ice cream cone was invented in 1904 and it’s been a popular choice ever since. With ice cream and gelato being so popular, it’s important to have a store stocked with the most essential supplies for eating and enjoying these frozen treats. This article will be taking a look at several essential ice cream and gelato supplies that you should have in your store.

    • Ice Cream and Gelato Cups: One of the most important supplies you need to have in your store are ice cream and gelato cups. These frozen treats can be placed in a cone if the customer so desires, but many also choose to eat them in a cup. While similar in nature, ice cream and gelato are typically served in slightly different cups, so it’s important to have both in stock. It’s also important to make sure the cups you stock are made of paper, since they are recyclable and won’t damage the environment.

  • Ordering Some Fine Wine

    Wine stands as one of the most popular beverages in the world alongside beer, tea, coffee, and plain water. Wine has been made since antiquity and was a staple of the Greeks and Romans, and in fact today’s word “wine” comes from the Latin “vinum.” France and Italy are traditionally the world’s two largest wine producers, having the right climate and terrain to grow grapes needed to make wine. Some French and Italian wineries may be centuries old, and have strong reputations. More recently, the United States joined them as the world’s third major wine-producing country, and California alone makes 90% of American wine. Regardless of where it came from, white wines, red wines, pear wines, and more are always in demand, and today’s young adults love it even more than their parents do. Someone can find local wineries to visit or order some wine online, and they can look up prices for brand names, such as the price of Claret wine. Finding the price of Claret wine or similar brands may help a Continue Reading

  • A Beginners Guide To Drinking Whiskey

    Even if you’re not celebrating a special occasion, a glass of whiskey at a whiskey bar or a bourbon bar can be the perfect capper to a night out with friends. One of the best things about whiskey is that you can drink it straight, drink it over ice or make a delicious cocktail with it.

    What is whiskey you ask? Whiskey is distilled from grain and that grain can vary from corn to barley to rye. If you’re looking to enhance your understanding and knowledge of whiskey, here’s a few pointers to help you get started:

    • Try it neat: If you go to a local whiskey bar, one of the best things you can do to start off is to try your whiskey neat (as in with no ice). Why? By drinking it neat, you’re able to get the full flavor of the whiskey instead of potentially diluting it a little bit with ice. If you find you don’t like the taste of certain whiskeys neat, you can then add ice or some water. As your knowledge of whiskey grows and you (maybe) eventually try some rare w Continue Reading
  • Alaskan Paradise: 4 Ways To Enjoy The Great Outdoors

    Americans love vacation. In 2017, domestic travel totaled a staggering 2.25 billion trips, revealing that we don’t need to leave the country to have a good time. Although many people opt for beaches and sand when traveling, Alaska presents itself as an ideal location for those who prefer the outdoors. Let’s take a look at four of the best outdoor activities to indulge in the next time you visit The Land of the Midnight Sun.

    • Go hiking. Hiking allows you to truly feel the soul of the state. Although it isn’t always easy (and can be discouraging to beginners), there are plenty of options available to choose from — the most popular of which is Angel Rocks Trail, a 3.6-mile hike that features a lake and a gorgeous 360 view at the summit.
    • Go fishing. There are several all inclusive Alaskan fishing packages out there if you’re partial to the hobby, and there is certainly no shortage of fish. The most common catch is the Arctic grayling, as easy-to-catch fish distinguished by its slate gray color and large dorsal fins. If you’d like an extra challenge, try catching them with your bare hands!
    • Motorbike Denali Highway. The Denali Highway is a 135 mile stretch of lightly graveled road that extends into Denali National Park and Preserve. Described as one of the most spectacular drives in the world, it boasts vistas that go on forever and is punctuated by a majestic backdrop of the mountains and glaciers of the Alaska range. The ride is wild, to say the least, and can best be explored on a motorbike.
    • Try dog mushing. No all inclusive Alaskan vacation would be complete without an activity that can only be performed above a certain latitude. As the official state sport, dog mushing is a fantastic and eye-opening experience that you simply must experience. Denali National Park and Preserve offers daily tours so you can see how the mushing and kenneling actually work; talk about a truly unique adventure!

    Vacation is what you make it. Whether you’re interested in all inclusive Alaskan vacations or would rather plan your own adventure, you’ll never run out of things to do in the beautiful state. Book your stay in one of Alaska’s many luxury wilderness lodges, and explore the surrounding nature to your heart’s content.

  • What to Look For in Used Reefer Trailers

    The United States is home to a vast manufacturing industry today, which produces everything from cars to computers to books to children’s toys. Standing alone, this industry would rank among the world’s most powerful economies, but it cannot function without support. This is where the robust American transportation network comes in, to deliver food and goods of all kinds to and from factories, warehouses, retailers, and more. Carrier companies are many, and while most are small, there are a few large ones that own trains, ships, and jets that may deliver goods anywhere in a timely manner.

    Most of these carriers are small, and those companies own a modest but hardworking fleet of trucks that can carry freight all over the nation. Besides, these trucks are much easier to afford than a train, and they can go to many places that other vehicles cannot. A carrier company may invest in a variety of specialized and generalist trucks and trailers alike, and new or used reefer units may be Continue Reading
